to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun free zones for ours. >> it's a tough ad. dan lothian is at the white house. but i understand the president is fighting back with his own pr strategy because when he makes his big announcement he'll be surrounded by children who wrote letters to him begging for gun control. >> reporter: that's right. you know, we see the white house do this in the past, usually it's around a fiscal fight where the president's putting pressure on congress he'll be surrounded by families from across the country. well, in fact, the president, as you pointed out, will be surrounded by these young kids who wrote letters to the president in the wake of the connecticut shootings. in addition to that, though, a white house official confirming that the president will also be joined with some newtown families, families impacted by the newtown shootings at this event here today. so, clearly this is an effort by the white house to put pressure on lawmakers. as we've been pointing out, there are two tracks here that will take place, things that congress can d
to leave. so, don, what do you know -- dan, about this speech. is it done? >> we're toll the president putting sort of the last points on that speech and will be making some tweaks before he actually rolls it out tomorrow. we're told by advisers here at the white house that this will not be a chance for him to lay out policies but rather will be having or delivering a hopeful speech. making the admission that clearly you can't settle every debate here in washington, but that you have to look for areas of common ground. the president will talk about some of the challenges that he will be facing over the next four years, certainly some of those key domestic issues the president will be tackling, immigration reform, gun control, and finally the president hoping to get some public support to push his agenda through congress. plans to engage the public to put pressure on members of congress. this is being viewed as sort of act one, where the president makes broad themes. act two is between the president will release more details during his state of the union address next month. >> dan, i'm
the president will say to set the policy agenerda and the ton in his inaugural speech. dan lothian, what do we know about the speech and what the president wants to tell the american people? >> reporter: we're told by those familiar with the president's remarks that this will not be a policy speech but rather he will make it sort of a hopeful plea, talk about the reality that here in washington you can't settle every debate, but that you can look for areas of common ground. and this is a big difference from 2009 when the president came into office talking about changing the way that washington works and ran into the reality up on capitol hill. so he'll touch on that, touch on some of the challenges that the country faces as he moves forward on some key issues such as gun control, immigration reform, tries to deal with the debt ceiling. and finally, we're told that the president will push to get the public engaged, engaged in their community, engaged in the issues to put pressure on congress to move the president's initiatives forward, john. this is seen as sort of the stage one or the act one,
weapons ban through. >> let's head to washington and the white house. dan lothian is there, so dan, is the nra right? >> well, you know, i'm not going to make any predictions about what congress may or may not do. as we have learned over the last few years, what i can say is that assault weapons ban does appear to be facing an uphill effort up on capitol hill and i think what's interesting is that the president, right after the mass shooting in connecticut came out and talked about, you know, putting his support behind efforts to reinstate the assault weapons ban and this had been the position of the white house since then but what was interesting last week when the vice president was rolling out what he said what are the top tier recommendations that he had been getting of meeting with several groups he did not mention that at all so there were questions about whether the white house itself may have felt that it was losing steam and there was not support for this on capitol hill. but shortly thereafter, a spokesman for the white house saying the president and the vice president ar
matter when americans are taken hostage along with others. >> cnn's dan rivers is in london. dan, there are so many different stories going around that the compound was attacked by the algerian military, that some of the hostages escaped, including one american. what are you hearing? >> well, i'm afraid it is a very confusing picture. the latest line we have from the british foreign office here in london confirming that the algerians have told them that there is an ongoing operation at this gas field suggesting that perhaps some sort of effort to go in. we know from the ministry of information in algeria they surrounded the terrorists with the hostages at the gas field, the troops were there. this sounds like they have gone in. there were widespread reports that helicopters were being used to attack the terrorist positions. now, the algerian foreign minister is clear on that saying the use of helicopters is wrong, it's a fantasy was their quote on that. in terms of the number of people that are being held hostage, we don't really have a clear idea, i'm afraid. the initial reports
be, anderson. >> jessica, stay with us. i want to bring in dan gross, president of the brady campaign to end gun violence. mr. gross, what do you make of what jessica is reporting? >> it's exactly what -- >> sorry, we're -- >> it looks like exactly -- >> we're having a hard time hearing you because of the announcement right now. we know you're on the train. let me bring jessica back and we'll come back to you again. hopefully, they will have stopped that announcement. in terms of what could be possible through executive order, what on this list -- i guess some of the information on background checks perhaps? >> reporter: expanding the way background checks -- the way background checks could be conducted could be done through executive order, making that information more readily available, improving the way especially mental health is reported forward could be done through executive order. and also gathering more research on where the guns are in america. that's another thing that could be done. there is a long list. i could go on, anderson. you might want to get to your guest. >> let'
